The history of Storkow begun over thousand years ago as a settlement of Slavic people, the first proof we have is a document of 1209, signed by the emperor Otto IV. In the middle age Storkow already was a centre of a community of about 500 km². The Prussian King Frederick Guillaume II. promoted his country as a living and working place in the whole Germany. A few thousands of families from other parts came to Prussia, some of them stopped here on their way to America.
